Forbes Travel Guide’s
London Star Awards Debut

As Forbes Travel Guide celebrates 55 years of rating and recommending the world’s best travel experiences, it marks another big milestone: its inaugural London Star Awards. On top of that, London is Forbes Travel Guide’s first rated destination in Europe, joining cities in North America, China and Singapore. Since our founding in 1958 as Mobil Travel Guide, our team of incognito inspectors has traveled the globe to seek out the hotels, restaurants and spas that do it best. For London, our inspectors scoured everywhere from Kensington to Covent Garden and found six Five-Star hotels, 16 Four-Star hotels, two Five-Star spas and seven Four-Star spas. Find out which London spots won the coveted Forbes Travel Guide Star Award, the hospitality industry’s highest service honor.
